Gordon’s Fine Wines & Liquors

With its envy-inducing trove of Japanese whiskies, rye, and single malts, Gordon’s Downtown Crossing outpost is a brown-liquor lover’s dream. No, you probably won’t stumble upon that elusive bottle of Pappy, but you will find other Buffalo Trace rarities and sandwiches from Moody’s Delicatessen to soak it all up.
